Diet is a must. It seems some of these pathogens love the sugar. You have to go through a bit of hunger pains to get well/better, but it's worth it in the long run. I had a solid year diet of pure meat. Lots of chicken, turkey, and beef. Your body will adapt, and it will do well to keep things like candida at bay.

I hear you! I have Sjogrens which is also classified as a 'syndrome' when in fact is is a serious systemic and progressive disease. It's in the fibro, MS, Lupus family of diseases.
When I first went into major flare, I told my (former) best friend it was like being half alive. She and her husband said I was just making more of it then it was. I stopped talking to them and haven't spoken in 2 1/2 years. I barely had the energy to go from the bed to the next room .. and even getting energy to make my lungs work was difficult.
I went through 12 doctors trying to find a correct DX and all the while the idiots were giving me the wrong DX's and wrong drugs that were having a horrid effect on my body. And most of the doctors were saying it was all in my head. (something your article talks about .. a 'syndrome' being all mental issue). I finally found two doctors and an intern who knew what the heck they were doing and who got me properly DX'd. I still don't feel alive but at least I now have the correct meds to make it possible to breath and get out of bed. I can actually go grocery shopping most days now. I'll never be cured and I always feel like death, but at least I can do those things.
Anyways .. I hear you about the 'feeling like a zombie' thing. I totally hear you ...
